Over 13,000 hours of archival film footage from the U.S., British, German, and Japanese navies were gathered and edited for use in the episodes. Victory at Sea covered everything from the opening stages of the war in the Atlantic to the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the end of the war and to both V-E and V-J days. Victory at Sea is also remembered for its eloquent narration and great background music. The show was also nominated for an Emmy in 1953 for "Best Public Affairs Program" and went on to win the Emmy in 1954 in the same category.
